Word of advice to Judge Barrett: when the sniveling Democrats begin attacking you on ‘DOGMA,’ make sure you point out that the ‘dogma’ of Jesus Christ is far better than the ‘dogma’ of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Mao Zedong, Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un, Josef Stalin, Fidel and Raul Castro, Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro.

Judge Barrett said, “She loves the United States and she loves the U.S. Constitution.’ God bless you.
